    Start off the Christmas season with the Saint Vincent Camerata’s traditional Festival of Lessons and Carols in the Saint Vincent Basilica. The Camerata was created in the spirit of the Florentine “Camerata dei Bardi”, a 16th century gathering of friends dedicated to music, poetry, art, and science. Comprised of singers from the College, Seminary, Monastery and from the communities surrounding Saint Vincent Archabbey, the Camerata has been under the direction of Father Stephen Concordia, O.S.B. since 2008.
